Crimes of the Dutch in colonial Indonesia


I stumbled upon this short video about the discovery of a photo album with pictures of the execution of Indonesians by the Dutch during the colonial period. 

One of the things that strikes me about the video is that the commentators note that the pictures of the execution were not arranged in any special way; they were pasted alongside pictures of the ordinary life of a soldier on duty. Says a lot about the dehumanizing mindset of imperialists, huh?

I'm your average over-stressed Asian-American overachiever, your typical moderately talented wannabe writer, your everyday nerd with subpar social skills. I'm pretty boring really.
